X3M Music is today announcing the departure of one of its recording artistes Simisola Ogunleye following the expiration of her recording contract.
The Lagos-based label confirms, in a statement signed by A&R executive Vincent Nwanze, that both parties have decided to not renew the contract.
In a career that is still unfolding, Simi has emerged one of the most remarkable music talents of her generation; combining a peerless skill for writing and arranging, with a vocal prowess like none before her.
That special voice, an unassuming look, and writing talent are what attracted her to X3M when she was signed in 2014. She immediately warmed hearts with the hit single ‘Tiff’ which earned her a Headies nomination. Her debut album for X3M (her career second) was released to local and international acclaim in September 2017, and named album of the year in 2018, by The Headies Awards.
Her final album for X3M music ‘Omo Charlie Champagne’ was released on April 19, 2019.
X3M music is reputed to have a bias for original, alt music; especially in an industry dominated by pop.
